The Form 460 is the first step HCPs must take to participate in the Healthcare Connect Fund.  All HCP sites, including those participating in consortia, must obtain an eligibility determination via the Form 460 to participate in the Healthcare Connect Fund.  If participating in a consortium, an HCP may opt to allow the consortium to file a Form 460 on its behalf to determine its eligibility.  In addition, the Form 460 is used to register ineligible HCP sites, off-site data centers, and off-site administrative offices.  The Form 460 is also used to notify USAC when information for a site or consortium has changed.
